INGREDIENTS

105g unflavoured protein (3 scoops)

2 tsp Little’s Swiss Chocolate Coffee 

1 heaped tbsp raw cacao powder

1tbsp maple syrup/ agave

3tbsp melted coconut oil

METHOD

• Melt 3 tbsp coconut oil, stir in 35g protein and desiccated coconut.

• Press mixture into balls in the palm of your hand. Aim for about 15

• Place on/in a freezer safe dish and pop in the freezer while you prep the rest.

• Heat date paste in the microwave for approx 20-30secs to soften

• Mix in 35g protein, raw cacao, maple syrup

• Make up black coffee using minimal water, add to the mixture and combine

•  Roll mixture out and cut into 15 circles ( I shamelessly used the rim of a wine glass)

•  Remove coconut balls from the freezer

• Wrap the date mixture around the coconut balls making sure there aren’t any holes/gaps in the mixture

•  Repeat for all

•  To coat- melt 3tbsp coconut oil and stir in 2tbsp cacao powder

• Either roll each ball in the liquid chocolate OR drizzle over the top

• Sprinkle with a little extra desiccated coconut

•  Refrigerate to set the chocolate

• Enjoy! (Recommended serving- 2 bounty balls)

These are a delicious snack! What’s better is, you know EXACTLY what’s inside them!
